What You Can Expect
This was amazing! A must do for all who have an interest in the Castro and in GLBT history. The tour was very informative and at times moving as the decades of world changing history are revealed. The guide Kathy was so lovely and the tour moved at a comfortable pace.
We had a wonderful time and our guide Kathy was so knowledgable and friendly. She made us feel at home and you could tell that she had a passion for the Castro district. People were so friendly I want to come back. A great tour. See you soon!! X
One of the highlights of our San Francisco trip, we learnt so much and were so moved by this tour
Our tour guide was Kathy Amendola, and she was absolutely fantastic. She was knowledgable, warm, patient, and had a cute sense of humour. She is extremely familiar with the area in its' entirety, and was great at taking questions on the fly. This was not my first trip to San Francisco or the Castro area, but it was my first time taking a tour of this type and I would highly recommend it to others who are interested in learning more about the history behind this well-known gay and lesbian district :
Kathy was great and very willing to answer questions.
This was so interesting to see how this community has evolved. I really liked that it was a walking tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgable about the gay and lesbian community. I would reccomend this tour to anyone. I also would like to not none of us that took the tour are gay or lesiban just wanted to know everything about the city. We thought this was a great way to understand San Francisco and we were not disappointed.
our lead was knowledgeable and entertaining. well worth the money and time.
Awesome. A real amazing tour of history and information. Kathy has a wealth of knowledge and a lovely personality. We could have listened to her all day long. The tour really gave an insight into the Harvey Milk story and the history of the Castro. Prob the best your we experienced on our trip
Much more emotional than expected our guide, Kathy Amendelo was excellent.
very interesting and moving tour! I would highly recommend!
